An International Perspective on Climate Policies

Freie Universität Berlin, Germanwatch | Berthold Kuhn, Lutz Weischer

We introduce climate policies and look at implementation of climate policies in different countries and regions.

A series of efforts from international organisations, governments, the private sector and civil society organisations are underway to broaden and to deepen the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Different countries and regions face different kinds of challenges. Countries in the Global South emphasise the principle of “common but differentiated responsibilities”.

Berthold Kuhn, political scientist at Freie Universität Berlin, will introduce climate mitigation and climate adaptation policies, explore different policy-making options and the question if and how it is possible to measure and to compare the progress made in different countries and regions?

Lutz Weischer of Germanwatch will present the Climate Change Performance Index, a widely referenced project that has been presented at UNFCC conferences.

Both experts have worked in China for some time. Lutz Weischer will report on current development in EU-China climate diplomacy. Berthold Kuhn will comment on it from a political science and international cooperation perspective. About half of the time of this event will be reserved for questions and answers and for discussion.

PUBLIC LECTURE AND DISCUSSION ON WEBEX.
